What to Expect
Explore the colonial city of Cartagena, discover its many historical sites, and take a walk by the sea at sunset, on this 4-hour guided tour.
The city’s fortifications, built for protection against invasion, are still standing today. The well-preserved colonial architecture seen in houses, government buildings, and churches led to the city’s designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about important figures in politics, the arts, and music.
Your tour includes guided visits to 3 of Cartagena's most notable historical landmarks. First, tour the Castle of San Felipe, a site that has seen numerous battles. Continue on to the San Pedro Claver Church, one of Catagena's most-visited landmarks. Home to a priest who aided hungry and sick slaves arriving at the city’s port, this monastery has special sentimental value to Colombia's African-American descendants.
Stop at the Inquisition Museum, and learn more about Cartagena's bloody past. You’ll hear about the inquisition that took place in Cartagena in the 17th century.
